The thing that annoyed me about that is Medusa was the name of one of the Gorgons. The Gorgons weren't Medusas. I'm sure Terry would have known that, but can't think why he put that in.

It's like when he put Pelléas and Mélisande or Pelias and Melisande as they are called in Moving Pictures, when that is very much a Roundworld story. In Mort a Mellius and Gretelina are mentioned, who seem to have an identical story as the couple mentioned in Moving Pictures. :?

Greetings to all!
I'm Alex, nice to be rubbing elbows with such fine ladies and gents.

Out of curiosity, however, shouldn't this be the Mended Drum by now? :)

Jan, it was called the Broken Drum in Colour of Magic, before the erm . . . fire. It was The Mended Drum after that. This bit is called The Broken Drum - because we're all broke. :lol:

Welcome to the site, Alex. :D
